Do leaders need to be more moral than followers? Does power corrupt? Can anyone be a leader? Begin a study of leadership with a reading of excerpts from the Epic of Gilgamesh. After examining the ancient Mesopotamian hero, class members “vote with their feet” and agree or disagree with a series of statements about leadership. The ensuing discussion permits learners to examine, like Gilgamesh, the deep aspects of leadership.
